The Left Debates Wisconsin

I gave my take on events in Wisconsin — and Obama’s role in them — a bit earlier today in “Who’s Polarizing America?” And you’ll find Jay’s great stuff on Wisconsin if you scroll through yesterday’s Corner. But what about the Left?

There’s a fascinating debate on Wisconsin going on between Harold Meyerson and Charles Lane at the Washington Post. It’s of interest that Meyerson is a proud socialist, while Lane appears to be a Democrat unhappy with the left-turn his party has taken of late. At any rate, this debate is well worth following. Here is Meyerson’s initial op-ed, followed by Lane, Meyerson, Lane, and Meyerson.
